I found this stone 20 years ago when i was visiting The Valley Of The Kings.

I always found him special. So can someone help me a little further?

It looks like a papyrus polishing stone to me.

Yes, looks like a burnisher to me too.

One thing, given the strict laws on removing ANYTHING archaeological from Egypt, do you think that this would come under the legislation?

I'm not trying to be a nuisance, I'm just curious as to how this item might be classified. Wish I could find something as interesting as this though.
